We are going to be in Germany with a rental car. Is is a problem to take this car to Prague...and back? Insurance problem?

It depends on the company. You have to ask in advance when you make the reservation - some will allow you to and some won't. And I don;t know of any that will allow you to take larger or more upscale cars to cental or eastern europe.

We have reserved a car for 2 weeks in July, starting in Frankfurt to Prague to Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria and back to Frankfurt.

Rental: http://www.autoeurope.com/index.cfm?

insurance: http://www.accessamerica.com/

Close to $1,000 for both for 2 weeks.

You'll need to buy a vignette, or expressway sticker, at the first gas station past the border, about 300 feet, in order to drive on the expressways.

Thanks for the feedback. We have rented many times in Europe...just never to get to Prague. Glad to know we can do it.
